Cool Hello from New Orleans

I was an electronics tech for about ten years long time ago, when CD players first hit the market. I worked on computers for about five years and then I was working on motorbikes until recently, which I really enjoyed. Then life played a cold trick on me, gave me multiple sclerosis. Affected my memory, equilibrium and my speech mainly. Now I’m a 46 year old white guy stuck in a wheel chair. I’m trying to find a hobby which I can do. Amps and speakers looks like it.

In case you’re wondering my name John Doe with a French twist. My real name is Tobey. I been told throughout life I wasn’t right in the head, now I have legitimate excuse. LOL

See you around ………………………………………..

Hi Tobey or John or...?

There is MS in my family too so I can relate although I am not afflicted myself. It's good to see you looking for a hobby but with speakers I have to caution you. It's addicting. You will be falling asleep at night counting tweeters and thinking of better ways to build a box. I often have to catch a cat nap in the afternoon as I was up too late scheming about my next set.

Cheers and remember to show us pictures when you get underway.

Thanks Cal,

I have a RAID5 I have to restore, all my music, stories I wrote and pictures *poof* gone. You're OK if a drive fails, but lookout if a card fails.

Here's a picture I found of me online,

Hi Tobey (or John)
You said that; "I been told though out life I wasn't right in the head."

I always take comfort from the fact that someone said: "It's the cracked people of the world who let the light in!"

Cheers, Jonathan (Australia)

That's something that has to be remembered.


Cal, I know it can be addicting.

I have a 5 X 100 pushing dual Cerwin Vega's X 3 in front and two singles in the rear. My Sony amp has a low level out, varible from 30Hz to about 120Hz. Running to about 1000 watt amp pushing two 12'' Champion Pioneer's.
To say it rock's is an understatement.

Thank You.

To be honest, I've heard so much Jazz, I think my head is going to explode if I hear anymore.

Also, I: Count Basie, Benny Goodman, Porteña Jazz Band, Antigua Jazz Band, Ray Charles, Louis Armstrong, etc.. But actually I prefer Spanish singer songwriter Joaquín Sabina and Joan Manuel Serrat, and DJ´s music (Mauro Picotto, Armin van Buuren, etc...).
